My idea: Turn that Giving History link on the child's page (My Sponsorships) to the history of our giving just for that child. That would be so useful, when we wonder, for example, "How long has it been since we sent a gift to Tausi?" or "How much did we send to Shakil?'

We sponsor several children, and because God has blessed us so much, we have been able to send small family gifts, from time to time. On each child's page is a link to Giving History. After the website was redone with all of the new writing tools, etc., I needed to know what gifts--excluding birthday gifts and Christmas giving--we had given, when, and to whom. On a child's page, I saw the link to Giving History and thought, "Oh, good! Now I can see what we have given to each child!" Wrong. It took me to our overall Giving History.

I extracted the information I needed by scanning through each month, in each year, going back through 2007; for about half of our children, that leaves several years for which we don't have history of giving.
